Monaco celebrated International Women's Day with a special lunch hosted by the Minister of State, Pierre Dartout, at his residence. The lunch was chaired by Princess Charlene and had the theme “women and sport” which highlights the importance of female participation in sports.
Minister Pierre Dartout emphasized that women's rights have been a priority for the Prince's Government for many years. The government has been working towards promoting gender equality and providing opportunities for women to achieve their full potential.
The lunch ended with the presentation of a collective artistic work called Mr One Teas, produced with the help of 100 children from the Principality. The work was unveiled by Prince Albert II and Princess Charlene, who also contributed personally to the work along with their children Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella.
The work was based on the theme “Women and sport seen through the prism of the new generation”. The artwork represents the face of Alice Millat, a great promoter of women's sport, who competed in the first women's Olympics organized in Monaco. The ceremony took place at the Espace Saint Antoine in the presence of the children who took part in creating the work.
This celebration is a testament to Monaco's commitment to promoting gender equality and empowering women in all aspects of society. The participation of the children in the creation of the artwork is a reflection of the importance of educating the new generation about gender equality and promoting the message of women's empowerment.
The lunch hosted by Minister Pierre Dartout and chaired by Princess Charlene, and the unveiling of the collective artwork is a significant step in promoting gender equality in Monaco.
